Damn good slot receiver. I really hope that Duke pans out because right now we have tons of speed but not a whole lot of size (not a bad thing but I am thinking a big dude for Josh to throw jump balls too would help)

just need guys that can get open. Just like the Patriots.

Say goodbye Zay

 

Brown and beasley - goes with foster and others.  Zay's gonna have his work cut out for him for sure.  Has to be versatile - learn to play all over the formation.  

 

But hey - its a step towards modern offense as you like to put it.  A slot guy who can get open instead of a fullback lead blocker.  A versatile Tight end.  2 speed guys on the outside and a flex guy in zay.  Anyone else they bring along will likely need to contribute on special teams.

Had a feeling this was coming especially after the bills facebook page the other day had a pic of beasley. Anyone else see that?

Weve got some more weapons now but not a lot of youth either. Oldest backfield in the league and brown and beasley are 29/30

No reason to get rid of Zay. You barely pay him McKenzie or Foster. Keep them all. Keep everyone that can help. Especially when 3/5 of the WRs are dirt cheap.

Interesting acquisition. Beasley makes his living in the slot, though, and Daboll clearly has been asking for a Wes Welker/Julian Edelman type. Actually, the more I think about it, the more I dig it. Go Beane. 

 

And I don't think this means the end for Zay. Not at all. Beasley is 30 years old and even though it's a 4-year deal, it's likely structured in a way that gives the Bills an out after one or two years. Much like the Tyler Kroft deal. He isn't really guaranteed anything beyond this season. As for Zay, he'll line up outside where he's actually better off. Lot of people tend to think he's made for the slot because he caught so many screens and short passes from there in college but if you look at the film, he excels more when he lines up outside.

Like it, but I think they still need a bonafide number 1 WR

The Bills don't need a true #1.   NFL offenses can thrive with a near handful of competent receivers as long as they have someone who can distribute it to them.   The Bills are looking to pick up on this trend but add a twist to it by going more vertical with this approach than what we've seen.  The thinking is that they have a QB that can not only sling it down the field to the receivers but with the vertical approach it will open up running lanes for Allen to take advantage for chunk running plays.   I think it's going to work.

Never been a big fan of Beasley, but he’s better than what we’ve had recently, and generally seems sure handed with the ability to get open which is what Allen needs right now.

Lot's of different type WRs for Josh Allen to find who fits in with his style of ball speed and trajectory.

I’d rather have a WR group of 5 guys that can play well, then be trying to force it to a #1 guy. I really like what we have going here. Now I’d say go draft a TE at 9 or move back in round 1 and take a TE and let’s go.

I really don't understand the thought process behind Zay being gone. The kid made a big jump from year 1-2, he's young and has shown improvement.

If we can somehow snag Hockenson.... wow.

 

Kroft/Hockenson working the middle of the field with Beasley in the slot, Foster/Brown taking the top off and the hopeful development of Zay Jones.

 

Beane is, once again, a magician

Yeah - buys us time to try and get weapons through the draft.  We need young talent at RB, pass rush, and linemen on both sides of the ball.

Double yuck.   We lead the lead in #3 receivers after this and it only cost us $60m.

 

Collectively it isn't a bad group, but this is straight from the Carolina school of "How to assemble a receiver corps"

Me either.  It would make zero sense.
